I maintain a substantial archive of remixes and original source material in both vinyl and digital formats so remix culture is quite a passion of mine.
I was glad to see Tristan post Underworld's "Born Slippy (Nuxx)" in this thread.
I'd like to continue Mindfulness' theme of remix documentary material so I'll offer a few exceptional examples.
If you haven't seen it before, there is an excellent piece titled, "Video explains the world's most important 6-sec drum loop" about the Amen break.
But my most favorite documentary series of all time is Kirby Ferguson's Everything Is A Remix miniseries expertly-produced in the video-essay style.
The series explores how everything, from the printing press to rock music to Hollywood blockbusters are all remixes of earlier materials. Ferguson offers the original 2015 version of his series for free on his YouTube channel.

He also offered a few minisodes between the releases of each installment. The Matrix episode was very well done.

Ferguson continued to refine and remix his own remix documentary releasing a new updated version in 2021 discussing newer content like Kanye West and Tik Tok. The first two installments are available for free on his website and YouTube channel.
